RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2023 Press Day

Celebrating our 28th Gold Medal at the RHS Chelsea Flower 2023

Peter Beales Roses are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded our 28th Gold Medal at the prestigious RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

The 2023 exhibit was created over the course of a week using over 800 old-fashioned and contemporary roses, coaxed and nurtured into full bloom by Michael Baldwin, Hybridization Manager. Taking over 300 man-hours to create on site, the show team had been working non-stop to ensure the roses looked their absolute best for Monday's RHS judging team.

The exhibit was designed and brought into effect by Nursery Manager Ian Limmer, who was elated with the news: “From the first design thoughts right through to the final rose positioning is a tremendous team effort and I can’t thank the staff enough for all their tireless hard work, passion and dedication in creating this gold medal winning exhibit, this medal belongs to them all”.

Designed so that visitors could walk through and immerse themselves in the beauty of the roses, the 2023 Peter Beales garden exhibit showcased the versatility of the rose.
With each entrance adorned with beautiful climbing and rambling roses, whichever way you entered the exhibit, visitors were greeted with a spectacular vista through to a classic urn stonework centre piece, which was surrounded by our 2023 introductions ‘Louise Peel’ and 'Beryl Felicia Manthorp'.
A tumbled down potting shed designed and created by Redwood Stone and two Victorian rose covered arbours with welcoming benches were also featured, offering the perfect place to stop, take a breath and enjoy the 800 plus roses used to create this stunning exhibit, with roses ranging from the twelfth century right through to the modern day.
